I'm not sure I can add much to what has already been written about LeBear. This is my partner's and my second stay here and we really enjoy it. It is virtually a home away from home. We were visiting the area at the same time that some friends of ours were and we hosted dinner one night. With a fully equipped kitchen, a huge dining room table that comfortably sits six or more, and a grocery store within walking distance, we had a veritable feast. The wood fireplace crackling in the living room and the beautiful views of Lake Michigan made the evening even better. We love the spaciousness of the accommodations and the large outside deck. We also enjoyed the hot tub several times which is always clean and just the right temperature. This is definitely our go-to place when in the area. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to feel like they're staying at their second home.

Probably one of the best resorts in Michigan but it is overpriced. The room is huge with upscale stone gourmet kitchen. The bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub, a steam shower and heated floors. The room has great views and comes with a gas Webber grill. The pool is heated, a plus in Michigan. The paddle boards and kayak were entertaining. They provided us with s’mores and every night you could sit outside by a gas fire pit or have a fire on the beach and make s’mores. They also provide you with wood if you want to use the wood burning fireplace or just turn on the gas fireplace. It is just a short walk to town. The sand dunes are very close. They were a little strict about the kids making noise at night or early in the morning. We were told our kids were making too much noise in the morning but it was the family next door since our kids were still asleep. The beach is very rocky so kids might want to bring beach shoes if they are going in and out of the lake frequently

Very disappointed in Holiday Vacation rentals. I had been researching somewhere to have an end of summer fling with my family. After much investigating we decided to book the LeBear Luxury Resort. We had stayed there previously and loved it!! It's absolutely beautiful. Consequently, I made a reservation on their website. My card was charged and I assumed everything was set to go. I then received a phone call stating there was a glitch in the system and my reservation was not going to be honored. My entire family was disappointed in this. Now I'm back to square one since Holiday Vacation Rentals is not going to honor a legal transaction.

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Walking distance to town and 5 minutes from the dunes. Views of Lake Michigan are spectacular. Would definitely re-visit in the future. The only thing missing was the northern lights.

We were extremely surprised by how great this resort is. The spaciousness and amenities in the unit were first class with an incredible water view. We enjoyed watching the eagles from the wide expanse of living room windows. The room is very lovely and comfortable with fireplace, plenty of seating and open to the large gourmet kitchen. Our unit also had a chess table in the living room which we enjoyed. Large master suite with steam in shower and large jacuzzi. Two additional bedrooms and full bath plus laundry facilities which came in very handy, and a half bath. We made a lot of use of the gourmet kitchen and also enjoyed a few meals in town, within walking distance. The on-site restaurant exceeded our expectations as well. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it's a nice option since MI weather is often cool. Would definitely enjoy going again.
